2017 Spec Series #1 -- Details & Rules

Post  Lothar on Sun Jan 22, 2017 10:34 am



The FMC Spec Series is a points-based series, consisting of 9 races on 9 different tracks. The series features races that are determined by Total Race Time. In other words you are racing against everyone in the series, not just the racers in your lobby.

The Car:

2015 Audi TTS



There is a specific build for this series and you can read all of the upgrade and livery requirements by clicking HERE.

The Schedule:

Races start at 9:00 P.M. EST U.S. / 2:00 A.M. GMT

ALL RACES ARE 25 LAPS

Race 1 - February 13 - Road Atlanta Full
Race 2 - February 20 - Silverstone International
Race 3 - February 27 - Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
Race 4 - March 6 - Hockenheim National
Race 5 - March 13 - Homestead Road Circuit
Race 6 - March 27 - Brands Hatch Grand Prix
Race 7 - April 3 - Indianapolis Grand Prix
Race 8 - April 10 - Catalunya National
Race 9 - April 17 - Yas Marina North Night

Race Details:

Participants will recieve an invite from their pre-designated host around 8:50 P.M. EST U.S. / 1:50 A.M. GMT. Racing will begin promptly at 9:00 P.M. EST.

Lobbies will be set by qualifying time for the first race, for more details on qualifying for the first race click HERE. Lobbies for races 2-9 will be set by average points. For all of the races you will get in your race lobby and the grid will be set to random with a rolling start.

All races will be rolling starts. Restarts may occur if a driver lags out on the first lap, or 2 or more drivers wreck on the first lap. Number of restarts are limited to 2.

Since game chat does not work very well at the moment, we will utilize party chat.

If we have more than 16 competitors we will split the lobbies evenly.

PITTING

There will be 1 mandatory pit stop between laps 3 & 24, which means you must pit on lap 3 or by the end of lap 24. You may make more than 1 pitstop if needed. Any car exiting pit road must stay off the preferred racing line until they are up to racing speed.

DEFENDING POSITIONS

The car holding the position can make one move to defend the position up to the last lap. On the last lap they can make more than one. The car trying to take the position has to call out if and when he gets alongside the car in front. If the lead car moves over to block and the chasing car is already alongside, even if only by a bumper, the lead car risks causing a crash that would be his fault, not the fault of the chasing car.

LAPPED CARS

All lapped cars must pay attention to where the lead lap cars are on the track. Once the lead lap cars get close to them they must stay to one side of the track, either the left or the right, until the lead lap cars have passed.

Races will be approximately 30 - 45 minutes in length, and the finishing order is determined by Total Race Times from all lobbies.

There are prizes up for grabs for this series but we must maintain a minimum participation level during the season. In order for the prizes to be available at the end of the season, we must have at least 16 participants compete in at least 8 of the 9 scheduled races. So please invite your friends and keep reminding them on a weekly basis to show up the races.
